Issue 4 "A Handmade Christmas" OUT NOW!!!!

Exciting news!

Our super special Christmas Issue is now available for you to order! 
Filled with festive crafts, recipes, music, stories and more, Issue 4 is titled "a handmade magazine, celebrating a handmade Christmas".... because we believe that Christmas shouldn't be about consumerism, but instead it can be celebrated beautifully and simply when we make it about handmade, simple traditions and thinking about others. 
We have made this Issue with the hope that it will encourage us all to rethink how we celebrate Christmas. We have had some fabulous contributions from crafters, musicians, and writers near and far who celebrate Christmas in their own unique way. We have kept many of our regular features, while making a few changes to suit our Christmas theme. 
We do hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have had making it. We both love Christmas, and so this particular issue holds a special place in our hearts!! To order your copy, head to our online store today (we tend to sell out pretty fast these days!!) 
Love Mezz and Taz xo

Hundreds and Thousands Magazine First Birthday!!

We celebrated the mag's FIRST BIRTHDAY last Saturday with a Picnic Party in our hometown of Melbourne, Australia. As is to be expected in Melbourne, the weather was cold, windy, wet....and occasionally sunny, but we had a lovely gathering regardless! It was wonderful to thank our friends, family, contributors and supporters....and to meet a few for the first time!! We are already dreaming of our 2nd birthday stay tuned!!

Thankyou so much to everybody who has bought, shared, loved and contributed to this little magazine. As we have always said, we jumped in head first with not a lot of experience or even much of a clue about why we were doing this and how....but we knew we wanted to make a little handmade zine that we would love, and you have no idea how much joy it has given us this past year to see so many other people love it too! "Hundreds and Thousands" is what it is because of the wonderful community that has grown around it! So, thankyou, thankyou! To all of our interstate and overseas supporters who couldn't make it to the picnic...we missed you and we are grateful for all that you have done!

Lots of love....and stay tuned for our special Christmas issue which will be out very soon!!!!!
